Tax Day at the Warehouse

It’s tax day at the Warehouse.  It’s not entirely last minute.  There are 7 more days before they are actually due.  This is early for me. I have to work up to things like this.  Yesterday, I decided that today would be the day this would get done. This morning, I had to remind myself […]

Cherry Blossoms

Every spring, in Newport News, VA, we are treated to a beautiful display of cherry blossoms along Canon Blvd. They are gorgeous in their own right, any time, but they always serve to announce that Spring is finally here. That was a particularly welcomed message last week since we experienced more winter than we really […]

Hiding in Plain Sight

There is a lot in the news these days about how the government is watching all of us.*  One of my favorite TV shows is all about that.  So, in light of this new reality, I thought I’d offer up a few suggestions on how to hide things from people so that they will never […]

An Issue with Issues

In the second decade of the 21st Century, there is absolutely no shortage of issues.  Education, discrimination, health care, racism, sexism, abortion right, LGBT rights, women’s rights, equal pay, poverty, environmentalism, immigration, privacy, free speech, even science itself.  Plenty to choose from, right? I’m not sure what politicians would do without them.  Run the country, […]

Noah

I walked into the theatre knowing that Darren Aronofsky’s Noah was only very loosely based on the Bible story about The Flood.  I was ok with that.  I knew it was not “Christian” or “Biblical,” and I was ok with that, too.  I did find it impossible to leave comparisons at the door, however; I […]

Perfection

You’ve probably heard the old adage, “Perfection is Boring,”  but let’s be honest; who would know?  Perfection is a myth.  It’s a time-consuming, money-sucking, frustrating myth. No one has ever written the perfect novel, composed the perfect song, painted the perfect painting, sculpted the perfect statue, created the perfect meal, built the perfect home, married […]

Glass Bottles

This is a photo of some of the glass bottles recovered from the sunken steamboat Arabia located at the Arabia Steamboat Museum in Kansas City, MO.   It’s a fascinating museum, worth the visit if you are ever in Kansas City.  The Arabia sank near Kansas City on September 5, 1856, carrying 200 tons of […]

This Red Guitar

“All I have is this red guitar Three chords and the truth. All I have is this red guitar. The rest is up to you.” Bono added this verse to Bob Dylan’s song “All Along The Watchtower.” The story goes that he forgot the words during a live performance (not an uncommon occurrence for any […]
